What's Next For Terminally Ill 11-Month Old Set To Die?

Battle for baby Charlie Gard’s life goes global as Trump requests to meet Theresa May

An unnamed U.S. hospital today offered to treat 10-month-old terminally ill Charlie Gard for free, after President Donald Trump said he would be "delighted" to help the baby and his parents Chris Gard and Connie Yates.

The European Court of Human Rights refused to intervene.

The parents had said earlier that they expected doctors to end life support for their child last Friday. London's Great Ormond Street Hospital, which earlier turned down the parents' plea to move Charlie to the USA, has now refused a Vatican hospital's request to transfer the child to Rome for further treatment.

Theresa May is set to face a grilling from Donald Trump over efforts to help save terminally ill Charlie Gard.

Charlie's parents Chris Gard and Connie Yates, are seeking to bring him to America for experimental treatment for a rare genetic condition called Mitochondrial Depletion Syndrome.

His story has gone global after his parents Connie Yates and Chris Gard, from west London, were blocked from taking him to the United States for experimental treatment to improve brain function.

"The President is deeply moved by the heartbreaking situation facing Charlie Gard and his parents", a White House source told the newspaper. But court after court sided with Charlie's doctors at London's Great Ormond Street Hospital.

"The hospital told us that, for legal reasons, the baby can't be transferred to us".

"The Holy Father follows with affection and emotion the case of little Charlie Gard and expresses his own closeness to his parents", the statement read, according to Vatican Radio.

After Trump expressed his intention to help the family, an unnamed hospital in the US reportedly offered to provide Charlie with a new experimental treatment at no cost if he is allowed to travel.

Enoc said she was contacted by the child's mother whom she describes as "a very determined and decisive person and doesn't want to be stopped by anything". In the post, the president claimed the United States would be "delighted" to help Charlie in any way possible.

Specialists at London's Great Ormond Street Hospital decided that a therapy proposed by a USA doctor for the infant was experimental and would not help, and that life support for the child should be stopped.

Charlie's mum Connie said: "The support from the Pope and the President has given us hope".
